---- — Caroline B. Jablonski of Brookfield was received in the loving arms of her savior and by her family as she departed this life to begin her new life at 2:27 p.m. Friday (10-4-13) while under hospice care of Sharon Regional Health System following a period of declining health. She was 92.

Caroline was born Feb. 7, 1921, in Sharon, a daughter of Phillip and Elizabeth (Young) Siege.

On Oct. 9, 1948, she married Walter S. Jablonski, and together they started a family.

She loved and adored her family as a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.

She lived for her family and always had family gatherings at her home.

In her spare time, she enjoyed bowling, cooking, baking and, of course, entertaining.

Survivors include: her husband of 64 years, Walt “Whitey,” who was true to his vows; her sons, Eric “Ric” W. Jablonski, Vienna; and Marc S. Jablonski, Brookfield; her daughters, Barbara L. Somich and her husband John, Warren, Ohio; Gloria A, Vallone, Concord, Ohio; Donna M. Lucas, Warren, Ohio; and Leah J. Sipos, Sharpsville; her 10 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren; her sisters, Phyllis McKean, New Smyerna Beach, Fla.; and Judy Weaver and her husband Thomas, Midvale, Utah; and her brother, Tom Siege and his wife Arlene, Sharpsville.
